I totally agree as currently we are talking about how to connect some of the activities, like the upstream training and the contributor portal and how to connect those with the on-boarding rooms and then comes mentoring which we try to advertise, but I think we could do a better job on that too if we coordinated things a bit more.

And maybe it will help us utilizing our resources a bit better as well. :)

That said I think there’s a need for smaller more focused groups who do the work and then maybe 1-2 people attend the larger group and give their input and return to the group with information.
